Fate

Posted on Updated on

I love poetry. Whether in a poem or a song, I love lyrics. I have been posting either poems I love, or my own poems on Tuesdays, so I am making it official!

Poetry Tuesdays on My Sound Mind. This week I am featuring a poem that my daughter wrote for a school assignment. Her teacher, (that’s me) loved it and gave her an A+

I love it’s flow and the message is profound. Enjoy!

Fate

Death, pain, suffering,
Fire, brimstone, darkness,
Endless hours, endless days,
This is our cage, this is our fate.

Sin, curses, strongholds,
Demons, monsters, beasts
These are our chains, this is our fate.

Mercy, love, forgiveness,
Holiness, glory, light,
Endless worship, endless praise,
This is our haven, this is our fate.

Repentance, blessings, prayer
Angels, saints, shepherds,
These are our wings, this is our fate.

Salvation from a savior,
Temptations from a captor
This is no longer our fate,
This is our choice.

Created by God, Cultivated by Matthew Jacobsen, Written by Emily A. Jacobsen.
